Videos on build projects and pdf files with patterns for some.I also siigned up for his weekly paid program when it first started and have learned much and enjoyed having a woodworking show to watch each week with details, not just highlighting a project.
Well, I finally have the SketchUp drawing started. I still have to put dimensions on the drawings and will need to write the instructions. Just wanted to whet your appetite. Here are a couple of views of the 3D drawing:

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...
Doing some resawing. The basic box. About a week ago my dentist, Bam, said he had a piece of old Kamagong for me. Well that made the pain in the dentist chair more tolerable (actually it was only a routine cleaning). It was a pretty scrungy looking board about 30” x 18” with nail holes (including a couple of nails) and a fair share of splits. I could see some nice grain buried in there though it would have to be brought out where it was more obvious. Also someone had ‘...
I made a couple of improvements. I added a spring to keep the push rod against the actuating lever and a small screw behind the spindle lock lever to keep it from moving too far back when the router was lowered. Original Post:I designed my router lift to allow above table bit changed using two wrenches. That worked pretty well but the Porter Cable wrench would occasionally bind on the bottom of the collet, making removal difficult. I decided to use the stock spindle lock instead. I just ne...
Learning things about woodworking is like a lot of other things. You can get a lot of book knowledge and over intellectualize it, but in reality, there is no substitute for actually getting your hands dirty and doing it. I have been combing YouTube videos on everything from making guitars and violins looking for ways to do fancy inlays to how to do beautiful French polish. I read up on how to make non-splotchy stain finishes and how to smooth the wood with a scraper so that milling marks w...
Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....
